The experience I had I mean still enjoying because I am not checked out yet, is the best. Back packing is the future especially if it's done the Island Vibes PE way. The lady at front desk (Eve) she is helpful, knowledgeable about the surrounding and very pleasant. I doubt anyone leave without being friends with her. Keep up the... More

We were looking to spend the night in Port Elizabeth as we traveled on to Addo. This property suited our needs exactly. The location was quiet and private, the facilities are quite spacious and the kitchen area is large enough for several people to work in the space without being on top of each other. The children loved the pool.

We stayed in a private ensuite room with a double bed. Room was hot and only a noisy, portable fan provided. Our room was near reception & tv area, and was therefore noisy. Insufficient parking, therefore our car was parked in when we wanted to leave at 7am. Toilet was filthy! Otherwise room was clean, hot shower & good sleep.... More

Good day, Sharnay! We apologise for you being parked in - unfortunately our secure parking gets full during peak season. We have spoken to the cleaning staff and provided a check list to ensure the bathrooms stay clean at all times. We are also putting ceiling fans in all our rooms to combat the heat - we are so sorry... More

I've been there with my girlfriend 3 weeks ago. The Island Vibe P.E. (or 99miles lodge) is different than the other Island Vibes in Knysna or J-Bay.
